It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Joseph McElderry - Simply Beautiful

He's gorgeous, he's 19, and he's gay!

I like it when young men like Joe come out.  I know it may have been difficult for him, but he worked the courage to announce it on his official website, thanking his family and fans for their support.

Singing an original song by Miley Cyrus, "The Climb," Joe McElderry became X-Factor's season six winner in the UK.   In 2010 he was approached by Twentieth Century Fox to record the specially written track, "There's A Place For Us", which features in the movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  The song was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2011 for best original song in a motion picture.

So in honor of X-Factor making it's American debut in the Fall of this year, I have posted 4 videos of the very talented Joe McElderry.  The first one featuring his amazing rendition of Luther Vandross's "Dance With My Father", the second one featuring his X-Factor finale performance where he sang "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus, the third being his first music video, "Ambitions" and the fourth video being his current hit, "Someone Wake Me Up."

Will She Be Able To Pull It Off? Can She Be A Wonder?

Countless people have tried to emulate Lynda Carter, but to no avail, no one has been able to fill her shoes.  How can they?  Lynda Carter is absolutely beautiful and will forever be our 'true' Wonder Woman.  But as I mentioned last week, David E. Kelley is a superb writer and producer; he hasn't made a show yet that hasn't garnered many awards or created a show that I haven't liked.

Actress Adrianne Palicki has been picked to fill the shoes of our favorite heroine in the upcoming new NBC series Wonder Woman.   If you don't recognize her, it's because Palicki was on the TV series, "Friday Night Lights," where she played Tyra Collette, a blond Dillon High wild child who turned her life around and wound up going to college. The last two episodes of season five find her back in her hometown.

The new Wonder Woman series will be making it's debut in the Fall and people have already begun passing judgement on it.  And this is why... NBC has revealed that its new Wonder Woman series will add a third identity to the superhero’s life. According to TV Guide, the series will give Wonder Woman three separate identities. The first will be that of Wonder Woman herself, while the second will be Diana Prince, Wonder Woman’s civilian alter ego from the comic books. Meanwhile, the third identity will be that of Diana Themyscira, the CEO of Themyscira Industries. In addition, Wonder Woman will have a separate love interest for each identity: Henry Demeter, Diana Themyscira’s confidante, Ed Indelicato, a man with ties to the police and Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s boyfriend in the comics.

I'm a little concerned about the changes, but not by much.  I'm really curious to see how it will turn out and see if Adrianne can pull it off.  I for one, think she's really beautiful.  What do you think?

OMG Hilarious!

Now, that isn't right. LMAO.

A 30-Second PSA Sure To Have You Talking

"We Won't Go Back," the 30-second Public Service Announcement released just a few days ago has people in awe, and rightfully so.  The Republican Party is doing whatever it can to overturn Roe vs. Wade and take things back to how they used to be, when women had no voice and women had no choice.

You may have recognized the the lovely actress in the video and couldn't put your name on it; she's Lisa Edelstein.  She's been in a few movies; 'As Good As it Gets,' 'What Women Want,' & 'Daddy Day Care,' and many television shows, 'House MD,' 'Felicity', 'The Practice,' & 'The West Wing'.

Check out the video "We Won't Go Back," down below.

Lady Gaga Claims 1000th No. 1

So while all you bitches were being rude and cruel to our Lady Gaga, she was on her way to making history by grabbing the 1000th leading song on the Billboard's Hot 100 Chart; Breaking several other records along the way.

"It is a tremendous honor," Gaga tells Billboard of the milestone. "To be the 1000th no. 1 on Billboard...I would be silly not to say this is the greatest honor of my career."

"I am so humbled and so honored and overwhelmed by the reception to 'Born This Way,' " Gaga adds. "[It] has been so life changing for me as an artist, and between Billboard and the international number ones and the radio numbers...I couldn't be more blessed to have the fans that I have."

Courtesy of Billboard.com are the other records she broke over the weekend:
On Radio Songs, the Hot 100's airplay component chart, "Born This Way" begins at No. 6 with a first-week audience of 78.5 million. That's the highest bow and largest opening airplay figure for a song since the tally began incorporating all radio formats in December 1998.

The arrival of "Born This Way" bests the previous debut record on Radio Songs, set when Janet Jackson's "All for You" soared in at No. 9 with 70 million in 2001.

With opening-week digital sales of 448,000, "Born This Way" likewise breaks barriers with the largest debut sum for a female artist. Britney Spears established the prior mark four weeks ago upon, the arrival of "Hold It Against Me" (411,000).

The opening of "Born" marks the third-largest debut among all digital tracks. Flo Rida's "Right Round" started with 636,000 in February 2009 and the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" with 465,000 two months later.
Notably, "Born This Way" rewrites airplay and digital history after just five days of availability at radio and three days at online retailers.

The song is also just the 19th title to debut at No. 1 in the Hot 100's history.
All I can say is... stop hating.

When I was growing up in the 80's, Michael Jackson, Madonna & Cyndi Lauper, were all despised and hated back then.  In the 90's people hated Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears & Christina Aguilera.  Hell, even the King of Rock n' Roll was hated back in the 50's when the Billboard's Hot 100 was created.

They all broke records, they all defied odds and they all ignored the Press.  Gaga deserves her time, just like any other artist.
